If there's a presidential race afoot, there's bound to be some chowing-down around town. President Obama stopped by Atlanta's classic hot dog drive-in The Varsity, entourage in tow, and ordered five chili dogs, four regular dogs, and one hamburger - which he toted back to the parking lot in a paper bag.
Stops at local haunts are de rigueur for candidates hoping to curry favor with the electorate, whether it's Brunswick stew at Harold's BBQ across town, brats and beer in Green Bay, shrimp and grits in South Carolina, loose meat in Iowa or pancakes at every diner across the U.S.A. If there's a formica table and a few votes to be nabbed, you bet the campaign bus will be taking a snack break.
